Doctor uses snowmobile to make house calls

HOLLAND, MI (CNN) - A Holland, MI doctor is known for making housecalls, even on his snowmobile.

Dr. John Schloff will hop on his snow-hog if he has patients who live on the outskirts of town.

He generally rides on days when there aren't too many cars out.

The doctor says the snowmobile is a quick and fun way to reach patients stranded by the snow.

"Family practice is a great way to practice medicine. You get to know your families, delivering babies, being a part of the family. This is just one more way of visiting them out in the sticks," he said. "It's just a fun way to practice."
